Syracuse evens conference record in 12-9 win against North Carolina

first_imgCHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Nate Solomon ducked his defender and took a step to the middle, curling toward the cage.He cocked his stick back over his right shoulder and unleashed a shot past North Carolina goalie Caton Johnson. Solomon pumped his fist then turned to hug Brett Kennedy and Peter Dearth, who swarmed him after setting up the fastbreak that put Syracuse ahead, 11-7, with less than a second to play in the third quarter.“It can be a little bit deflating (for the opponent),” SU head coach John Desko said. “It was a big one for us.”No. 9 Syracuse (8-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) started the second half tied with No. 18 North Carolina (7-5, 1-2) at seven goals each. It ended the third quarter up 11-7, smothering the Tar Heels offense and squeezing out enough goals to pull away and win, 12-9, on Saturday afternoon at Fetzer Field. The victory moves the Orange to .500 in conference play, potentially pushing it out of the ACC tournament’s play-in game.“To tie it up at halftime was huge for us,” attack Bradley Voigt said. “And we just went in to the locker room at halftime knowing we could control the rest of the game.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe conference moved to a new tournament format this season to include the fifth team, previously left out. The No. 4 and No. 5 seeds play to face the No. 1-seed, already secured by Virginia.The Orange have finished 2-2 or better in the ACC for the last four years. The last two seasons they went 4-0 in conference. Coming into North Carolina with a 1-2 record, SU hoped to preserve the streak.It did, but with Duke topping the Cavaliers minutes after SU’s win, the Orange are reliant on a UNC win against Notre Dame next Saturday to secure a third-place or higher finish. After Saturday’s win, Desko said he’d heard chatter from players in the locker room about the stakes, but opted not to jump in and distract from the opponent.“I thought about it a little bit before — what could happen where in the ACC tournament,” he said. “But, right now I can’t control anything.”Syracuse, a team that’s avoided early lulls in back-to-back dominating wins, looked like it would do the same. The Orange bolted to a 2-0 lead. But the Tar Heels’ top-20 offense punched back, ripping off six-straight to put the Orange in a 6-2 hole early in the second quarter.The Orange responded with a four-goal run of their own. A goal each way knotted the contest, seven each, at half. In the locker room, SU’s attack knew they hadn’t played at their highest level, Voigt said. They still churned out seven goals despite rushing shots early in the shot clock and playing frantically through transition.“Halfway through the shot clock we were settling for shots that we could get with 10 seconds left,” Voigt said.With 10:40 left in the quarter, Jared Fernandez forced a turnover and Stephen Rehfuss scooped the ground ball. Pat Carlin drove to his right hand from the alley. When his defender forced him wide, Carlin spun right, dropped his stick and shot between Johnson’s legs, breaking the tie and putting SU up for good.About a minute later, the Orange got the ball back after a low pass from behind Drake Porter’s cage slipped through the legs of UNC attack Nicky Solomon. The ball trickled out of bounds, and SU got the restart. Barely a minute later, David Lipka sprinted out to his left from the midfield, whipping a shot across his body and rippling the twine behind Johnson to build a 9-7 lead. Voigt tacked on a tally of his own 1:11 later.For the rest of the half, the Orange smothered the North Carolina offense, deflecting shots, forcing turnovers and pushing possessions late into the shot clock. It never broke down.Then, finally, Solomon put the finisher on one of the most important quarters Syracuse has played all season.

They did a great job all day long and battled through with some ups and downs.”Elder said going into the tournament, Wellington was beginning a new rotation since sophomore McKenna Oathout was out with a concussion.  “Erin Goodrum did a phenomenal job taking her place as starting setter,” Elder said. “In fact, she did such a good job that she was selected to the all tournament team. The girls did an excellent job making the changes and adjusting quickly that they were able to defeat Medicine Lodge and Chaparral early on in the day.”Wellington struggled against Conway Springs to end pool play with the Cardinals winning in three games.“We struggled passing in the beginning, and when I finally thought we had it together during the Conway game we incorporated different errors with serving and hitting,” Elder said.The Crusaders finished Wichita Independent off in the semi finals and finally faced Clearwater in the championship.  The second game they battled extremely well, but came up short of 1st place.  On the day, Micah Rogers finished with 11 kills, Siarah Walker finished with 26 kills, and Erin Goodrum finished with 55 assists.“I’m extremely proud of the girls and the way they adjusted, played, and finished out the tournament,” Elder said. “It’s so nice to have a group of competitive girls that make it their goal to finish off teams and win!  The girls got hardware to take home in the form of a medal which they were extremely proud to have.”Wellington is now 9-8 on the season.
